Led by the Tsawwassen and Ladner Rotary Clubs, with Rotoract Clubs (university students and young professionals) and Interact Clubs (high school students) in Delta and Vancouver, $1,150 in proceeds from tickets Rotary sold for that game will go to the campaign to End Polio. With a double matching grant from the Government of Canada and another from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that converts into a contribution of $5,750 towards the $1.5 billion global campaign still needed to erradicate polio completely.
 
Another big winner was the Boys & Girls Club which received tickets worth almost $1,700 purchased by Rotarians and others so that 94 young people could attend the game at no cost.
